Waylyn is the 13 year old daughter of Amy Davis, of rural Sheyenne North Dakota. She will be entering the 8th grade at New Rockford Sheyenne High School this fall. Waylyn loves rodeo and anything to do with horses. Waylyn has been riding since she could sit up; she started competing in lead-line classes at the age of two and by the age of four, was doing walk-trot western pleasure classes and even pony barrel racing and pole bending. Waylyn got her start at horse shows, but it wasn’t long before the thrill and adrenaline rush of the speed events drew her to rodeos! Waylyn currently competes in Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, and Breakaway Roping on her two horses Farrah and Flint. When not competing with her horses, she can be found doing all kinds of things with her horses, like teaching her barrel horse Farrah to bow, or even to do the Hokey Pokey with her.
Waylyn is active in 4-H, FFA, FCCLA, Basketball, and is involved with the Sheyenne Oberon area Ministry churches. Waylyn is a member of the North Dakota Junior High Rodeo Division, the Roughrider Rodeo Association, the National Barrel Horse association, and the American Quarter Horse Association. She also enjoys being outdoors with her animals, playing piano and hanging out with her friends.
Waylyn was crowned the 2015- 2016 Miss North Dakota Junior High Rodeo Queen in May at the Junior High State Rodeo Finals in Bismarck. Waylyn lights up when talking about the North Dakota Junior High Rodeo Division, she will tell you her favorite thing about Junior High rodeo is the atmosphere; she says “Everyone here is a family; they are all willing to help each other whenever needed”. Waylyn has learned many valuable lessons already from rodeo, such as; being prepared for anything, multi-tasking, and to never take anything for granted. She is excited about the experiences she will have this year and to be representing both the sport of rodeo and the Junior High Division, while sharing her passion for both with everyone she meets!
Waylyn’s motto is: “Don’t let anyone EVER Dull your Sparkle”
Waylyn would like to thank all of her Sponsors and everyone who has supported her on this Journey!
